Social Disease
Style: Hard Rock
Release date: November 2007

This Belgium band started back in 2000. In their home country they play a lot of gigs, but I had never heard of them before. That the band has a strange kind of humor, you can hear from the intro - "Not Music".  A strange band with strange music.

The music is very variable. I hear influences of bands like: Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Kyuss and Lynard Skynnard. 70's hardrock with psychedelic influences and a kind of southern feel. Some harder songs like for example "Paranoļa Again" and "You and Me" go hand in hand with the more quiet ones like "Through Rain the Sun" and "Angel". The song "Kill your Gods" has a kind of Van Halen touch. To me the songs are to diverse.

That you can't put the band in one corner you can also hear from the song "Social Disease". If it would have come from a Rancid album you would have believed it too. The production of the record could have been better, I think it is a bit vague. It could have been a little brighter with more power in it.

Although this is not quite the style I like, the record is worth hearing for people who like the above mentioned influences. Perhaps they have to put one more point to my rating.
